once upon a time when i had all terrains.. i decided to get the Nittos instead of the bfg mall terrains.. i loved them, just seemed to wear real quick. that might have something to do with how i drove though

They look too stock to me personally. Something about a bare sidewall, with no meat on it makes it look plain to me.

My friend had a set on his ranger, but got rid of them because they looked too stock.

Thats the exact reason why I decided against them on my 150. Going with something more aggressive.

gf had them on her old f150...she raved about them and how "she didn't get stuck, but her cousin with BFG ATs did"...

they wore okay, but personally, I wouldn't buy em. Yeah, the lightning bolt-esque sidewalls are kinda cool, but they don't come in white letters.

I love mine. I have a set of 35's on my F1 and they have been a good tire. Great on the highway and awesome in the sand, even towing 11,000lbs on the beach. I really have no complaints. Probably doesn't hurt that they are 13" wide though.

That said, they are the only Nitto's I would ever consider running. And I probably wouldn't run them on my Ranger. For a truck that sees more street than off-road they are a pretty damn good tire.

my ranger sees the trails probably once a month. so they are a good enough tire for now. Maybe later down the road when she has lockers and is double lifted i'll get M/Ts

My buddy has them on his F-150, and they look pretty good, they look more aggressive in person than they do in pictures though, he likes them and said he will buy another set.

I like them on and off road, no problems. I think they perform just as well or better than most any AT tire.

They are made by Toyo, and essentially a Toyo Open Country AT with lightning on the sidewall.

My dad has them on his F-150. I don't think its ever seen dirt... but they have a lot better highway manners than my Sport Kings. His are wearing pretty fast, but his truck is heavier than a Ranger and he drives the hell out of it.

i like em. handle them allot at work, real solid tire. seem to wear well from what i have seen too.

they are definitely an all terrain, so expect more from them on then off the road



definitely something that i am considering for my next set of tires (in the 33" variety of course).

Compare prices to Toyo Open County ATs, supposedly have a better, longer lasting compound.

These are my top choice for new tires when mine get replaced soon. I have done quite a bit of research and they seem to be very good all round tires, especially for the price. Like said tho they are meant to spend more time on street than dirt, but my truck is a daily driver so that's what I need.

My truck is my daily too i got them in a size 295/75/16. I have 265/75/16 steel radial sport kings right now. these nittos are alot more agressive and the sport kings have gotten me through some nasty trails, so i have high hopes for the nittos

Went to the shop today and paid for my wheels and tires.. check'em out what ya think?

I have the Nittos and have been nothing but happy with them. They are wearing great so far. I have 7k on the tires and can still see the stock paint in the tread that came on the tires.

I have taken them off road and in the mud and have been real happy with the results.

I love the looks... plain and simple.

Get the tire, you will not regret it one bit.
